Girls are great, right? Until they have to share a bathroom… Then the chaos ensues. How do you create separate bathroom spaces for a teenager and grade school sisters? Especially when you only have the one well loved family hall bath? One Naperville family turned to Lellbach Builders to solve this hall bath remodel challenge.
The solution? You start from scratch and redesign the bathroom!
First you divide the bathroom functions into individual spaces. This creates the illusion of separate baths. The addition of a wall and door encloses the toilet and tub/shower in a private space. This instantly provides more flexibility, since the different spaces can be used by each of the girls at the same time. No more waiting for someone to finish a shower before using the sinks.
A double vanity gives each sister her own sink, storage and prep area. Extra storage space is easily available with the deep drawers in the vanity. The grey color provides just the right amount of color and contrast to the space.
White subway tile and grey hexagon marble accents in the niches of the shower, offer clean and classic materials with a white tub. Grey plank marble porcelain tile installed in a random brick design sets the tone for a visually spacious bath.
The understated styling and light color scheme is the perfect backdrop for the girls’ pink accents. Chrome accessories add a bit of sparkle and shine. A large skylight finishes this hall bath remodel, letting in plenty of natural light.
While the girls still technically have to share a bathroom, now they can prep for their day at the same time. Perhaps this bathroom remodel can’t solve all sister challenges, but it at least adds some much needed peace and calm to the upstairs in the morning.
